My visit to Venezuela was for a peace initiative-Dr Orji Kalu

My visit to Venezuela was for a peace initiative-Dr Orji Kalu

Dr Orji Kalu the Senator-elect for Abia North Senatorial District on Wednesday refuted claims that has been going around that his visit to Venezuela to see President Nicolas Maduro was to cut an Oil deal, saying he only went there for a peace talk with the Orji Kalu Foundation and its partners across the world.

According to the report by NAN, Dr Orji Kalu said it was contrary to speculations reported on social media platforms that the former governor of Abia met with President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro to cut oil deals.

Dr Orji Kalu, who did not disclose full details of the peace moves, said there must be peace and harmony for any nation to thrive. He said that he also used the opportunity to meet with members of the Afro-Venezuelan community.

Dr Orji Kalu called on the governments of United States of America, United Kingdom, China, Russia, Nigeria and others to fashion out an inclusive and integrated strategy to overcome the crisis facing Venezuela.

He, however, pointed out that foreign leaders and diplomatic corps across the world are deliberating on the challenges being faced by Venezuela in a bid to restore peace and normalcy.

“I am in Venezuela in my capacity as the founder and chief promoter of Orji Uzor Kalu Foundation.

“The visit is in line with our foundation’s objective of promoting peace across the world.

“We are working with development partners and critical stakeholders to ensure peace and prosperity in Venezuela.
